Future of Education Interview Series in Full Swing

My "Future of Education" interview series is moving forward in full swing now, and you can see the details at FutureofEducation.com.  Tomorrow (Wednesday, February 11, 2009) I interview Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit organization (formerly known as NetDay), about what has been learned from Speak Up, the annual national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow. The Speak Up data represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, 21st century skills, schools of the future and science instruction. Education, business, and policy leaders report using the data regularly to inform federal, state, and local education programs. A copy of the "top ten" report is attached to the discussion page at the discussion page at Future of Education. Join me for the interview and a Q & A session--details at the bottom of this post.

On the docket for upcoming interviews are:
  • Erin Reilly, the Research Director for Project New Media Literacies (NML) (more information)
  • Keith Krueger, CEO of the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN)
  • John Palfrey, co-director of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, on his book Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives. (In conjunction with the PBS - Classroom 2.0 Webinar Series.)
  • Gary Stager, progressive educator and all-around gadfly
  • Bud Hunt, Ben Wilkoff, and Karl Fisch on "Learning 2.0" and their annual conference on the topic
  • Mike Huffman and Laura Taylor on the bold experiment in Indiana with Open Source Software
And we're just getting started... :)  Recordings of previous events with Tom Friedman, Don Tapscott, and Carol Broos are also available on the Future of Education site.  Hope you'll consider joining our conversations!

  1. A plea .... for an RSS feed for the audio ... to throw into iTunes

  2. Your wish is my command. The feed is on the fuller page: http://www.futureofeducation.com/forum/topics/the-future-of-education

    Since I had an iTunes podcast account already for my EdTechLive series, I've just been adding the recordings to that.
